Lightning bolt strikes 20 feet from Florida deputy; body cam records explosive thunderclap

A Central Florida deputy's body cam shook violently as lightning struck about 20 feet from him and a woman standing outside an assisted-living facility, producing a thunderclap that sounded like a bomb Wednesday.

No injuries were reported.

Cpl. Kevin Stevenson of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office was responding to a call for service at the Hudson Manor Assisted Living Facility when the bolt produced the explosive noise, startling him.

If you can’t get inside a building or a vehicle, get as low to the ground as you can, perhaps even into a ditch.
